There was great excitement last weekend when a guest at the Lizzie Borden Bed and Breakfast continued to get a pale reflection in a mirror while using a digital camera in Emma Borden’s room on the second floor. The little room had once been Lizzie’s from age 12-30 before Emma changed rooms with her younger sister.  It certainly seemed as if something supernatural was trying to “come through the veil”.

After trying several digital cameras and obtaining the same eerie effect, someone suggested taking the shot without the flash. No ghostly image appeared!  The flash was apparently bouncing off the framed oval portrait of Emma over the bed and reflecting it into the mirror.  But it was fun for a few moments!
